Action-packed Amsterdam

Sarah Smith on 12 October 2011
Another weekend trip with a group of friends, we had a great time visiting the galleries and nightlife of this famous European city.

We stayed in the Convent Hotel on a broad street away from the main hustle and bustle of the liveliest parts of town.

By day we wandered around galleries and museums, stopping for coffees and cakes when we pleased. By night we found a marvellous Dutch restaurant called Moeders where the locals ate. Traditional and homely, we felt we’d found the real Amsterdam. I would highly recommend this place for it’s home cooked food and vintage crockery and decor.

TIP: Take a walk through the red light district; you can’t go to Amsterdam without a quick peak!
